Lying here with you reminds me of those days
Me and Candice waking up to a heat wave
Mother's in the garden inviting everyone
Ooh, we cut up our old jeans and go outside
Neighbour's always smiling with the baby on her knee
Rhia sat on the front step getting her hair combed out and greased
Music, the bass boomin' pours from the car parked in the street
Got that new song on repeat, oh oh

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I just like to make you see that
I desire the simple things

Growing up we didn't have a lot of money
Used to spend our summer having parties on the drive
Plastic cups for rum and punch, eating chicken that's hot and sweet
All the women discussing what love is like, ooh you know the way I mean
And I'm just sitting watching hoping the boys will call for me
Got that new song on repeat, oh oh

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just tryin' to make you see that
I desire the simple things

Maybe then now and then I would want somebody
Delicate, intimate, used to dream of someone to love
Now you come and your alright by me
I know I'm in love

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint this picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'm just tryin' to make you see that
I desire the simple things

I'd, I'd like to put my fingers on you
I'd, I'd like to paint a picture for you
Sometimes you don't understand where I'm coming from
I'd just like to make you see that
I desire the simple things

(I'd I'd)
Ooh, I'd like to put my fingers on you
(I'd I'd)
And Paint a picture for you
(Sometimes you don't)
Understnd where I'm coming from
I desire the simple things

(I'd I'd)
Like to put my fingers on you
(I'd I'd)
